ONE SCOOP OR TWO

CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS FOR A NEW SERIES FROM THE WILD ROSE PRESS, INC.

We are launching a new series for next summer.  It will be 7500 – 35,000 words – NO PRINT. 

These are meant to be short stories, quick beach reads for next summer.

All stories have to do with ice cream.  We want an ice cream flavor within the title. – just things like Chocolate Almond Dream or Butter Pecan Mischief  or a light erotic romp titled Never Eat Ice Cream with Mr. Vanilla.  No trademarked ice cream names may be used. 

They have to take place in summer. The stories need to center around or have something to do with an ice cream stand or if a historical, an ice cream churning event, a local ice cream parlor, etc.  These stories aren’t about eating an ice cream cone. 

Stories must take place near water, a beach or a resort town. These stories are inspired by the hot days of summer and that iconic feeling of getting some ice cream with friends, on a date or on vacation. They can be any heat rating from erotic to sweet and any genre.   These are not just romances, although a summer romance is always a popular sale. 

We want to release these next summer so these will have a quick turnaround. We want your polished manuscripts ready for submission. Deadlines for summer 2020 releases will be March 1, 2020.  Manuscripts must come in very clean for quick turnaround time.  However, we will be looking to continue the series for summer 2021.
